A few more pictures from the weekend. We finished off Sunday with The Wild Feathers, Purity Ring, and The Avett Brothers, followed by a 3 hour drive home. Monday is already hurting, but the lack of sleep is so worth it.

Forecastle Fest was incredible – there’s really nothing better than sharing your love of music in a laid back fashion with thousands of other people who feel the same way. I will definitely be back next year. 


This weekend was ridiculous. Here’s what I actually remember: 

On Saturday night, we decided to do the Bambi Walk, recommended by Shortmom. Thanks to Four Square I now know we made it to: The Back Door, Holy Grale (REALLY cool bar in an old Unitarian Church, but so tiny!), Highlands Tap Room Grill (Great music! I LOVE live bluegrass. This is where my grumpy cat picture was taken. For reasons), Cahoots (Sketchy. This is where I really started to hate Smitty. For more, similar reasons), Flanagan’s Ale House, Molly Malone’s, Phoenix Hill Tavern (80’s hair band, anyone? I really just did not understand this place. The main bar led you into another bar, which led you to another bar, and so on. Smitty said, “I’m going to go explore” and didn’t come back for a long time. Then we figured out why). 

Sunday brunch was at Dish on Market. The food was good despite the slow service and mix up of orders. After that, we parted ways and headed home. And then some Mexican fell into my face. The end.


And a short, behind the scenes capturing of moments from Forecastle.

A change is a comin....

Buddy dudes/dudettes and random stumblers!

Im making some changes to this blog in the upcoming few weeks (I hope!). A few of the changes are:

  • A new landing page for www.jigartronic.com
  • This blog is going to be a subdomain of that address and the address is going to be blog.jigartronic.com
  • I had an old photography tumblr (photobugger.tumblr.com) which im going to revamp and make it as an online portfolio for my photos and create it as a subdomain of jigartronic as well, addressed at photos.jigartronic.com. The photopage itself is called phototronic.tumblr.com

It’ll make sense, i promise. Coming Soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So if you guys arent yet aware, i have a photo set that im tastefully calling “Pakistan”, a set of photos taken during my recent trip back home this past winter at Cafe Milo for the month of March. If you’re in Ames, i would really appreciate it if you could go check it out!

Anyway, considering ive gotten a boost in my confidence regarding my photography and have gotten a lot of compliments on what i have shown so far, i am planning on posting one different photo that i have taken that i would like to share with everybody everyday for the month of March. I will start off with the photos that are currently hanging at Cafe Milo, in case you are not in town and are unavailable to check them out.

Im also setting up an online store to sell high quality prints for my photos at Jigartronic.bigcartel.com incase anyone was interested. Each photo will be put up on the store according to the response i get. You can email me for any questions you may have as well (absnaqvi@gmail.com)

I am excite!!! Hope you enjoy them as much as i enjoyed taking the photos and working on them.
